We all know that locally grown food is the best. In this global world where produce that is flown around the world is depleted of its nutrients, and mass production and huge supermarkets are threatening the smaller, local producers, it’s getting harder and harder for small farmers and businesses to make a living. Sadly, this not only impacts their way of making a living but is also eroding our access to locally grown, truly organic food. Thankfully in Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, there is still a large local food culture. Let’s help keep it that way.
On this customized and personalised food walk, you will not only experience the best culinary delights that Slovenia has to offer but all by small businesses using fresh locally sourced and locally grown ingredients. Our expert foodie guide will take you through Ljubljana’s beautiful medieval old town and reveal the hidden delights among the throng of restaurants, grocery shops and markets.
Amid the fusion of modern establishments, it can be hard to find what is authentic and what is not. That’s where our guide is priceless. The guide will introduce you to local people running small businesses who will regale you with their stories. You will sample unique dishes, some of which are purely traditional and some which are a wonderful blend of modern and ancient traditions. What they each have in common though, is that they are freshly made from local, seasonal ingredients.
This insightful tour will leave a lasting impression on you and the locals you meet. Our guide will introduce you to small vendors at the Ljubljana food market who are often the suppliers to these small businesses. Your visit will help to ensure that small local businesses like this are not totally destroyed by the giant global producers of today’s modern world.
As a supplement to your tour you will be given a handmade bag sewn from recycled materials, in which you can take away some of the delightful produce you experience.
